We are excited to announce that OverDrive has released a new and improved app for ebook and audiobook lending called Libby. Libby simplifies the setup and lending process for ebooks and audiobooks, and was designed based on user and library feedback. Libby is available now for download in all app stores.
If you prefer to use the OverDrive app, it will continue to be fully functioning for the foreseeable future. We recommend that you download Libby and give “her” a try, though! The staff here at CCL has found Libby to be extremely easy to set up and use. Let us know what you think!
If you are an existing OverDrive Media Console (OMC) user and you upgrade to iOS 7, the app will fail when trying to open a DRM-protected eBook. New or first time users of OMC are unaffected by this issue.
Overdrive is resolving the issue but in the meantime, here are immediate remedies for you:
1) Re-authenticate the app with your existing Adobe ID. Refer to the iOS section of this Help article for assistance. (Recommended)
2) Uninstall and re-install OMC which will also require you to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear your bookshelf, history, and app settings. You can re-download your books after you have re-authorized.
Audiobook users won’t notice that anything is different unless you attempt to download parts of audiobooks you already downloaded to OMC before upgrading to iOS 7. You will then receive an error message informing them to download the title again.
